Question Bug in DICOM example / "ReadPatientDataFile" ?

Hi geanteers,

i think there might be a little "bug" in the dicom example (geant4.9.3.p01):

in "Data.dat" a "10" should specify ten different kinds of tissue (air to dense bone).

After debugging it looks like that in DicomDetectorConstruction::ReadPatientDataFile at approx. Line 352 starting "G4string newMateName = ..." ,this leads to an memory access violation during runtime, since mateID is defined from 0 to 9, so that "mateOrig->GetName()" does not work for a "10"

Easy solution: I changed "10" in "Data.dat" to "9" ..

This seems to work fine for me, but i am not sure, what the authors would think of it?

Are there complications in possible other parts in the code doing it this way?

I noticed, that the "DicomPatientZSliceHeader reading material ..." - message does not print material number "10" this way.. seems that there are some more inconstencies.. ?! (what about Colourmap and CT-2-density ?)

All the best, Holger
